Tuition Remission

Take advantage of one of the many great benefits of employment at the University of Maryland!

Eligible UMD employees who are taking courses or who have dependents taking courses at any USM institution will now use the new online USM Tuition Remission portal.  To use this portal for a spouse or dependent child you must have the Student’s Campus ID of the USM institution they attend. The new online system replaces previous paper and UMD Elf request forms.

If you are a Retiree or applying to Morgan State University, Baltimore City Community College, or St. Mary’s College of Maryland, please use the paper Tuition Remission Request Form.


Graduate Assistants

Graduate Assistants do not need to use the portal each semester or term in order to receive tuition remission. All GA’s, that have an active appointment in the university payroll system (PHR) and are registered for classes each semester or term, will automatically receive the tuition remission posted to their student account based on their full or part time status. However, graduate assistants should check with their departmental approver to confirm that your appointment is active in PHR. Each subsequent semester or term, graduate assistants will automatically receive an email stating that their tuition remission has been processed.
